The Coach Approach to Parenting (Episode 100)

On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Elaine Taylor-Klaus, an author, parent educator, and certified coach. The co-founder of, co-creator of Sanity School® (an online behavior therapy program), and co-author of Parenting ADHD Now! Easy Intervention Strategies to Empower Kids with ADHD, she provides coaching, training and support for parents of complex kids—and parents raising kids in complex times. Her newest book, The Essential Guide to Raising Complex Kids with ADHD, Anxiety and More will be out in September 2020, and is available on pre-order with bonus gifts including a “Parenting in a Pandemic” supplement. Elaine has served as a parent advisor for the American Academy of Pediatrics and on the national Board of Directors of CHADD. She is the mother in an ADHD++ family of six.

“Coaching is an empowerment way of being in the world,” Elaine says. “Coaching is about helping people see what they want and what they need to achieve. … When we invite parents to take a coach approach, we see our kids as independent beings and we want to empower them.”

Elaine is offering listeners to this podcast “10 Tips for Calm & Confident Parenting of Complex Kids.”

Listen to the podcast for more insights and suggestions about the importance of recognizing your child’s uniqueness.
